Many Calgary readers I am sure are familiar with Blush Lane's giant booth at the Calgary Farmers' Market. This organic focused company now also has a fixed store in Calgary, over on the West Side in Aspen Woods.
We went there the other day, after Sandra kept telling me that she has switched to buying her beggies and other main ingredients tehre instead of other grocery stores around town. Personally I am not so much a health focused foodie, but maybe I should look after my family's food intake a little more.
Fairly large for a single store operation, the first thing that impressed me was their cheese selection when you enter the place to the right. So many artisanal cheeses. A lot of Canadian ones too. Wow.
Throughout the well lit (compared to the darkish look of Community Health) store we found some real gems of local and international producers that are fairly unique.
Spoon Fed, a Calgary based company that makes tiny batches of good soups, is represented here. They only deliver in the inner city core, so if you are a suburban like most of us, this is the only place I have seen their jars of soup.
Plenty of gluten free choices as well, from Judy G Pizza, all the way to some lesser known brands from Australia.
I think I should aproach them about Victoria's breads and baked goods. What do you think?
If you are headed west of the city, go check this place out:
